Dazed and Confused

I never understood why so many people like this movie. At least with Fast Times at Ridgemont High I can sorta see the appeal.
If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, challenge them to a fight. If anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, air their dirty laundry. If anyone forces you to go a mile, berate him continually. Give to those deemed worthy (if they pass a drug test), and turn not away from billionaires in need of tax breaks. This is [not] the Gospel.

Gonna disagree with you on this one. I think Dazed and Confused is much better than "Fast Times". It's one of my favorite movies man!  :)

Never watched either one...actually, never even heard of the "Dazed and Confused".
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

I always think of the creepy line from Matthew McConaughey's character in Dazed and Confused when I see a guy in his 20s hanging out with high school students: "That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age."
